Scandalous Dresses One Hundred and Eleven collection, Hussein Chalayan, spring-summer 2007

One Hundred and Eleven collection, Hussein Chalayan, spring-summer 2007

For spring 2007, Hussein Chalayan looked backward to move forward. Named for 111 years of fashion history, Chalayan’s collection culminated with six animatronic dresses that transformed unassisted. Morphing from one iconic silhouette to the next, each dress traced the decades with its shifting shape. The final dress staged an Emperor’s New Clothes moment: The model’s simple chiffon sheath slowly ascended and disappeared into her hat.
